What Are Your Favorite Stephen King Movies?
#11
a bit of trivia for you Ocean,
King wrote IT shortly after notorious serial killer John Wayne Gacy was convicted, he murdered 33 teens/young men back in the 70s/early 80s,
it was highly publicised at the time that he used to dress up as a clown and perform at children's parties under the moniker "pogp the clown",
it was there that King wrote a book about a child killing clown...

Oh, I can see the similarity between them in a way.

apart from the 'mo', Dennehy could almost pass as Gacy (here is the Police mugshot of Gacy)

I like Brian too. He was good in Silverado.
Have not seen To Catch A Killer. Will be looking for the film.

That may have very well been the film I saw. Been a long time. Michael Riley did a good job! He brought a lot of intense moments to the film.
